wife bought 6pax family dinner @ blu kouzina, a greek restuarant at demsey on 1.3.2020.^^

used 3 coupons entertainer 1 for 1 for 6pax dinner..

so we ordered 6 mains for some reason when bill came after discounts it was not 100% off got the 3 lower price dishes but 90%..

food was pretty good.. for mains the lamb chops competent not the best..we ordered 2 servings..

the grilled octopus really good 👍👍👍 we also ordered 2 servings. ..

the masouka was very good, better than i expected ..wife & daughter find it a bit beefy..

beef skewer was so so ok

the pita bread & dip very good especially the white cod roe 👍 hummus & egg plant good too.. corn..I don’t really need la…

good family dinner, not exactly my kind of food, still quite enjoyable dishes…
